The aims of this activity are:

The students, in preparing for this activity, searched in books and on the internet information about the concept of female beauty through time. They realized a prezi presentation to share what they discovered with colleagues.
On November 7th they shared the knowledge gained to students in our school and debated the subjectivity of beauty and the way it was illustrated in art since antiquity.
